YCI, Yogyakarta Consumers Institute

YCI aims to encourage urban consumers to jointly cultivate organic vegetables and fish to meet their own needs and for sale to others. The project will increase the food security of households, increase community income and protect local biodiversity. YCI will train consumers about healthy food and the importance of sharing resources in communities, provide urban farming and fish farming equipment to communities to encourage the use of local resources to meet daily needs, and educate on the benefits of selling crops together as a community for additional income.
